Hm, I think it is rather far-fetched to suspect the brands of the network 
stuff.  A frontend runs happily over 10Mbit, if need be, so the 100TX network 
would have to be SO bad that he would've surely noticed that anyhow.

And besides, apart from the indeed abysmal speed of some (Realtek anyone?) 
NICs I am quite pleased with the performance of my no-brand-no-budget 100Mbit 
and Gigabit switches (Sweex & Target).  I'm a home user, do you honestly 
expect me to deploy a 3com Superstack 3 or the like (yes; I need it in 19") ?
